Medical Image Interpretation in the age of Artificial Intelligence

12:30 p.m. – 01:30 p.m., Room M3


Artificial Intelligence. Transforming data into knowledge for better care.
In our customers´ transformation towards value-based healthcare, they need inventive ways to lower cost and increase outcomes. We’re convinced that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is key to realizing this value-based approach. Radiology is set to transition from just an image-based specialty, to something that integrates more and more information into the diagnostic process and into the process of guiding treatment and leading treatment decision support. As a result, radiology now has the chance to transform from an image-based diagnostic specialty into an information integration and interpretation platform within medicine.

AI is a computer-aided process for solving complex problems that are normally reserved for humans. It’s essential to differentiate between classic algorithms, which follow paths that are permanently fixed by the programmer, and applications of machine learning, which work out the way to the solution independently, based on exemplary data. And a special role is played by Deep Learning, which is in many areas superior to the traditional machine learning algorithms. These algorithms are trained and improved by adding high volumes of data continuously, equipping them to continuously improve their error rate performance expectations.

With the purposeful use of AI, we can revolutionize our understanding and treatment of disease and change the very nature of wellness and health care. Delivering on the AI promise with an ever-expanding Siemens Healthineers portfolio, we’re making products and services with built-in AI a tangible reality.
